letter from the^ 

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on 
fighting the old, but on building the new." 
— Socrates 



Each year brings a new class of students with new faces, 
varied personalities and lofty aspirations. In the fall of 2009 
we welcomed the class of 2013 to the Wilmington High 
School family. I remember meeting with all of you in the 
auditorium on the first day of school. I gave you the same 
speech I have given previous classes, but I noticed some- 
thing different about your class; you were a very cohesive 
group with a quiet confidence. Although I'm sure you had 
many of the same fears as previous freshmen, you went 
to work immediately to make your mark at WHS. 

I had the good fortune to watch your success on the field, 
the stage, in the community and in the classroom. I was always 
impressed with your poise, dedication, spirit and the way you always took care of one 
another. To say the Class of 2013 left their mark would be an understatement. You never hesi- 
tated to take on a challenge. 

Each year at the start of school I challenged you to think about the things you did well and to 
continue them. More importantly, I challenged you to reflect upon what didn't go so well and 
reminded you that you had time to tackle those challenges and to work to make them positive 
experiences that would contribute to your personal growth. Overall, you met the challenges and 
came together, as I thought you would, to lead WHS both in and out of the classroom. 



As you begin your journey beyond WHS, you will need to utilize all of the skills you learned 
throughout your four years and apply them to life's next challenges. I am confident you will 
succeed based on your track record. "Focus all of your energy" on building the next segment of 
a successful life. It is yours to define and all of ours to enjoy! 



Be great, always 



I

Principal Eric Tracy 



A principal has many roles to fill. He is an administrator, a mentor, a disci- ^ 
plinarian, an educator and most importantly a leader. In 2004, Eric Tracy j 
accepted the position of principal at Wilmington High School and immediateiyfi 
demonstrated that he possessed the skills and commitment to successfully ^ 
perform all of these roles. Under his leadership, the school's accomplish- 
ments have been many including the NEASC accreditation, increased MCASi 
scores by thirty percent in the Advanced and Proficient categories, broader 
course offerings to better prepare students for college, plans for the new 
high school, and even a few State Championship titles. Mr. Tracy is a modest! 
man and attributes much of the school's success to the tremendous support 
received from the community. 

Mr. Tracy is an approachable and effective leader who is well-liked and re- 
spected. He takes great pride in his job and has helped orchestrate many 
significant changes at WHS. Whether it relates to academics, sports, or other 
school activities and programs, he always has the best interest of the students 
in mind when making decisions. Mr. Tracy has taught Wilmington students that ; 
most everything they will strive for in life will require hard work and that they are 
responsible for their own personal success or failure. There have been numer- 
ous instances where he has challenged his students to "rise to the occasion," 
and most often they did just that. Prom night is always a sleepless and difficult 
one for Mr. Tracy because he thinks of each and every WHS student as his 
own child. It is this genuine concern that will be missed most by students, par- 
ents and faculty. 

As Plato said, "The direction in which education starts a man will determine 
his future in life." Hopefully the education and values that students of WHS 
have acquired under the guidance of Mr. Tracy, will provide a foundation for 
future happiness and success. 

This year we dedicate the Hourglass Yearbook to Principal Eric Tracy to 
show our respect for everything he has accomplished at WHS and to demonstrate 
our appreciation for his support and encouragement to "always reach for the stars." 




Thank you Mr. Tracy and we wish you the best at Hamilton-Wenham. 

We will not disappoint you. 

The Class of 2013 




class 



history 



-rom the moment Mr. Tracy said, "These next 
our years are going to fly by", little did we 
;now how accurate he was. After being the big 
ihots for a year at the middle school, all of us 
vere about to be met with new challenges that 
vould push us like never before. The moment 
ve stepped into the high school that first day, 
III! of our lives changed. 

Freshman year started off huge for the Class 
)f 2013. The year began with class elections 
hat put Wayne Huynh as President, Jeff 
-avuzza as Vice President, and Brooks Carter 
IS Treasurer. Although not officially elected, 
d<aitlin Kinsella would stand in as the Secretary 
nor the officers. This group of officers knew 
oiow to start things right by calling on a few 
fiends to start a fundraising committee. The 
;irst order of business was decorating the spirit 
.vail and taking part in our very first spirit week. 
Seeing everyone participate and show their 
inigh school spirit is something we will never 
irorget. Between the officers and the com- 
imittee members, planning the cookie dough 
iiundraiser and Spring Fling were a piece of 
a;ake. While all of this was going on at WHS, 
ifhe world was dealing with stuff of its own. 
That was the year the earthquake ravaged 
Haiti and efforts all around the country poured 
n to provide support. Everything the officers 
and the committee accomplished that year 
wouldn't have happened without the guidance 
of advisors Ms. O'Mara and Mr. Maloney. 
The Class of 2013 worked hard that year and 
oroved that they were a class full of potential 
n the years to come. 

Some would argue that sophomore year 
s the hardest academic year and many 
students would attest to that. When people 
lear sophomore year, the first thing they think 
iabout is the sophomore research paper. The 
i/earlong research paper was grueling but like 
Ibther challenges the Class of 2013 faced. 
It was no problem. This year the President, 
'i\/ice President, and Treasurer all retained 
Kheir positions while Kait Kinsella became the 
Ibfficial Secretary and Holly Niemiec became 
lihe Public Relations Officer for the group. 
Ifhe Cookie Dough Fundraiser continued with 
isuccess and the greatly loved Valentine's Day 
oandygram fundraiser witnessed its first year. 
•In conjunction with the Class of 2014, Spring 
fling was planned and executed with success 
iwhile everyone who went had an unforgettable 
time. The 2010-2011 school year was not only 
significant to the students because it was the 
y^ear when Operation Iraqi Freedom ended 



and the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell 
policy was signed; 2011 was the year of the 
tragic earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan 
and left it as the largest nuclear accident in 
history. In lighter news, the Class of 2013 as 
expected, passed their last MCAS with flying 
colors and turned their attention to something 
scarier, deciding their future. 

As is customary, junior year is the year that 
everyone knows the goal at hand, preparing 
themselves for college. As kids began to take 
SATs and ACTs, the Class of 2013 once again 
entrusted the same officers from years prior 
to take the lead on class events. This year the 
class officers decided to implement another 
committee that became the prom committee. 
The members of the committee spanned the 
entire class and welcomed anyone that was 
willing to contribute to making junior prom an 
unforgettable one. This year a new tradition 
was created in the form of a school wide 
dodgeball tournament that pitted students of 
any class against each other as well as team 
of Teacher All-Stars. While the committees 
and officers worked hard to provide their fellow 
classmates with a great prom, the students did 
not go unnoticed for their hard work. This was 
the year the Boys Varsity Hockey team rode 
their season all the way to the Garden and 
took home the State trophy. It was without a 
doubt that the Class of 2013 featured amazing 
athletes and hard-working scholars. With all 
that was going on in each student's lives, it 
was hard not to take notice of the Arab Spring 
protests, the SOPA blackout, the Patriots los- 
ing to the Giants... .again, and the epic movie 
known as The Avengers making its debut. The 
end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 were 
event filled years and the students did well to 
stay focused on the task at hand. While this 
academic year came to a close, the final sum- 
mer as WHS students began and it seemed as 
if everything was flying by even faster. 

Before we knew it, senior year was at our 
doorstep and people were both excited and 
nervous. Applications to colleges were sent 
out and everyone awaited their decisions. 
Applications for scholarship after scholarship 
increased as the price of college increased 
dramatically. This year posed new challenges 
to the returning officers and the newly fused 
fundraising and prom committees that became 
known as the Senior Class Committee. The 
loss of the high school gymnasium only forced 
the class to work around and continue the 
dodgeball tournament before demolition and 



continue the Senior vs. Faculty Basketball 
game at the middle school. Before the loss 
of the gym, the senior class was able to host 
their very last spirit week and pep rally. Watch- 
ing everyone take part in a school tradition 
and do it with so much flavor truly showed 
how proud we all are to be wildcats. Megan 
Priem embodied all of this in her victory to 
become Miss WHS early in the year. The loss 
of the Royal Dynasty fundraiser dealt a heavy 
blow as well as the new wellness policy that 
prevented bake sales and candy gram sales. 
However, instead of candygrams the seniors 
sold wooden roses on Valentine's Day that 
were a hit among the students and made up 
for much of the lost funds. To further compen- 
sate for the loss of the gym, the senior class 
took on the Prom Fashion show and combined 
it with the Prom Expo to make one huge event. 
Later on in the year as students began to hear 
back from colleges, prom quickly approached. 
Prom was one of the Class's last hurrahs and 
they definitely made it so. This was the year 
we lost a member of the class, Joe Murphy. 
His loss will never be forgotten. Between all 
the senior festivities and graduation, relocated 
to the Shriner's this year, one couldn't help but 
have a gut-wrenching feeling. The success 
of the Boy's Varsity Hockey team as well as 
the Girls' Varsity Basketball team advancing 
so deep into the state tournament is some- 
thing we'll always cherish. Not to mention the 
enormous success that came from the Drama 
Department with the work they've done at 
the One Act Festival. They advanced to the 
semi-finals and finals for the first time in WHS 
history. As we move on, these are the memo- 
ries we will always carry with us. The faces we 
saw everyday growing up weren't going to be 
there anymore. Many of us had finally become 
adults even if we didn't act like it. After surviv- 
ing the "end of the world" that was supposed 
to occur on December 21 , 201 2, it was finally 
time for the seniors to pass the torch. M 

The Class of 2013 will definitely go down as 
one of the most successful classes in Wilm- 
ington High School history. The teachers and 
staff did a wonderful job in guiding us to where 
we are and where we one day hope to be. 
The Class of 2013 embodies the best and the 
brightest of WHS. With the world ahead of all „ 
of us, it is safe to say that WHS has prepared 
each and every one of us as best as it could. 
Now it is our turn to go on discover ourselves '( 
and see what we are all truly made of.

I'll miss you, my friend 



Take a look at my eyes, tell me what do you see? 

Feeling so helpless, the result of defeat 
My head keeps spinning, like a loose hurricane 
I can tell you, but can't show you my true pain 

Revisiting visions, of the day of your death 
I held you in my arms, and saw your last breath 
We felt like strangers to the world, A two of a kind 
Only wanting normal lives, but always declined 
We had each other though, through all the pain and sorrow 
They say life's too short, but they don't say that it's hollow 
So we lived to the fullest, being carefree 
But now there's no you, and now there's just me 
A frozen heart, my feelings are numb 
Emotions reduced... to nothing but crumbs 
i wish you were here, right by my side 
So cold and alone, I'm dying inside 
But I now know your safe, up there in heaven 

And know I'll visit, every 6th of the seven 
An angel on earth, you were always protective 
But now it's your turn, in paradise rested 
You'll truly be missed, my dearest friend 
But one day I'll find you, to say hi again

A huge thank you to Mom, Dad, and Colin 
for everything you guys have done for me 
over the years, and to my friends for making 
these past few years memorable. It's hard 
to believe that highschool went by as fast 
as it did, but here's to the future. 
Good luck to all! 



Thank you to my family, friends, and 
teachers for all of the help and support. 
The past four years have flown by, but I'll 
never forget the memories from WHS and 
the people who made them. Good luck to 
the class of 2013! "If opportunity doesn't 
knock, build a door."

It has been four incredible years. We were 
made here. Some of us will run from this 
place. Others will never leave. But we are 
here. As we go forth, clutching family and 
friends, remember that we have a purpose, 

and we must decide what to do with the 
time given to us. Sometimes the hardest 

thing and the right thing are the same. 
Thank you for this experience. Take care.

and discover that your high school class is 
running the country." -Kurt Vonnegut 
But seriously, for the memories that will 
become stories and for making me the 
person that I am and will become, I thank my 
family and friends. I could never forget the 
jokes, songs, and tales that were shared on 
and offstage, nor would I choose to. :) 




Thank you to all my family and friends for 
all the support. All I can really say about my 
high school career is EUR' T for the boys 
of course.

When I was little I had this idea that life 
could be perfect. That if you were careful 
enough, you'd never make a mistake, never 
be lonely, never be misunderstood, never 
be frightened, but it doesn't work that way. 
Life is big and messy, and you just have to 
climb in it with your boots on and hope for 
the best. 



Thank you to all of my friends and supporters 
throughout everything. To all of my 
teammates it's been a fun four years and I 
hope to watch some of you in the big leagues 
some day! I wish all of you good luck in the 
future and hope to see you all succeed!

I'd like to thank Mom, Dad, Rachel, Paul,

believe how fast these 4 years have flown by!

all! "but those who hope in the Lord will renew

My last 4 years of HS have been good. 
I have met new people and I like seeing 
my friends in the hallway. I always say hi 
to my friends and feel excited when I see 
them. I like going out to Emarc to learn job 
skills. I enjoy going to the Deca competition 
and receiving an award. I am part of best 
buddies club and will always keep in touch 
with my friends after high school. 





I want to thank my family and friends for all 
their support and encouragement, I'll never 
forget these past four years. Good luck to all 
my classmates in the future. Its been real. 



Thank you Mom, Dad, Justin and Alex for 
being there through the ups and downs, 
and getting me through every obstacle I've 
had to face throughout my lite. Although I 
was only here for 1 year, I have had a fun 

senior year with all of my friends. 
Everybody dies but not everybody lives, so 
live everyday like its your last because you 
are never promised tomorrow.

never thought senior year would come to 
an end this fast, I wouldn't have been able 
to do it without my friends and family. It's 
crazy that everyone we all grew up with 
is starting their own lives in the next few 
months. Hopefully I will see some of you in 
the future! 



Thanks to all my friends and family who 
have helped me throughout my life to get to 
where I am today. I wish the best for all my 
classmates in the future.

long time. I will never forget my teammates. 
Thank you to my family for supporting me 

in everything I have done; I love you! I 
have created so many memories and I am 

looking forward to creating many more! 
Best of luck to everyone! 






I want to thank my family and friends for a

"Love is a condition in which the happiness 
of another person is essential to your own."

years of my life.

On a rare but much welcomed warm March day, the junior class of 2013 final- 
ly had their chance to put on their formal wear and attend their first prom to- 
gether. Held at Hillview Country Club, the juniors rolled up in style, with limos 
and cars filling up the parking lot. The star studded, night sky theme made 
everyone shine their brightest, and there was a glow in the room. The night 
went smoothly, with everyone lined up for pictures, or out on the dance floor, 
showing off their moves. The night was capped off with the presentation of 
the prom court and King and Queen, won by Sam Borseti and Holly Niemiec. 
The night was a success by all and was a great way to start the spring!

As the 2012-2013 school year started, the students at WHS started to get into 
the swing of things. September rolled around, and with it. Homecoming. Held 
on a Saturday, it gave the fall athletes a chance to finish up their practices 
before coming to the dance, and other students time to prepare for the night 
ahead! The gym filled up quick, with the majority of the students in attendance. 
Whether it was dancing under the spotlight, the circle that formed for the Dou- 
gie, or the presentation of Kim O'Dea and Arthur Papastathis as the Homecom- 
ing King and Queen, this years Homecoming was one to remember. 






The first day of Spirit Week rolled into town with the student body pumped up 
and ready to go. The seniors got creative with their costumes, as their theme 
was costume/Halloween. iParty was used to its full advantage this year for 
sure, with the halls of WHS resembling a cartoon metropolis. The juniors 
showed up as TV characters, both the known as well as the more obscure 
characters. The red carpet was out for the sophomores who showed up as 
celebrities, dazzling their peers with their appearances. Finally, the freshmen 
showed up dressed as their dream job, with many outstanding costumes and 
ideas. The first day of Spirit Week started off with a bang, a preview of what 
was to come.

On the second day of Spirit Week, students at WHS showed their support for 
the brave men and women of our United States Military by wearing military 
memorabilia and gear to school. Commandos and sailors alike roamed the 
halls all day, keeping our school safe from any outside intruders. As well as 
military uniforms, some students wore peace clothing, expressing their desire 
for the safe return of our soldiers back home. Either way, students showed 
their patriotism and supported their country and their community.

With Spirit Week halfway to the end, Sports Day was upon the school. 
Jerseys, t-shirts, and equipment galore could be found throughout the build- 
ing. The creativity was off the charts this day, with students exploring every 
avenue for a new idea. From the Quidditch team on the common, to the world 
class cyclist, to the boxers and pro sports players, it is safe to say no stone 
was left unturned. Everyone gave their all on this day and made it a fun, cre- 
ative, and spirit filled day.

As Spirit Week came to a close, they saved the best for last. Blue and White 
Day. Arguably the biggest and craziest day in everyone's high school career, 
this year's Blue and White day proved no different. Face paint could not be 
found in stores for a 10 mile radius, and blue and white beads were a hot 
commodity. The students left nothing behind them, painting faces, making 
shirts, and wearing multiple shirts and socks. The culmination of the day 
ended with the Pep Rally in the gym. Students filed in with the band play- 
ing the fight song in the background, arranging themselves by class on the 
bleachers. Mr. Tracy delivered a speech that got the crowd going, and the 
cheers of each class were the loudest they've been in years. The rally ended 
with the famous roller coaster of each fan section, with the seniors edging out 
the other classes with their performance. For the seniors, it was a great way 
to end their final Spirit Week, and for the other classes, it was a preview of 
much more to come!

This year, Brendan Ahem, Jack Campbell, Erica Mullaney, Megan Priem and 
Craig Smith competed for the title of Mr. and Mrs. WHS Contestants were 
judged in several different categories, including formal wear, talent, their 
school spirit, and an interview. Hosts Mike Semonelli and Chloe Castellano 
did an amazing job entertaining the crowd during intermissions and introduc- 
ing the contestants. Performances ranged from renditions of A Whole New 
World from Aladdin, Breakin' Free from High School Musical, and Gangam 
Style, as well as dance routines and A Cappella singing. After a faculty vote, 
junior Craig Smith and senior Megan Priem were crowned Mr. and Mrs. WHS.

As the winter comes to a close, the spring blooms into one of the most excit- 
ing times at the highschool: prom season. To start things off right, the senior 
class hosted the Prom Fashion show, an opportunity for seniors and juniors to 
showcase a few of the newest styles and designs. It gave some the chance 
to wear something they wouldn't normally wear to a prom, diversifying the 
looks of the "models". The students loved the chance to wear the dresses and 
tuxes, and were excited to showcase their signature move. The night was a 
success, with the senior class raising money for future events!

The WHS Lamplighter's Drama Guild presented William Shakespeare's Julius 
Caesar as their fall production. The cast and crew worked very hard prepar- 
ing for the play, and it definitely paid off. They took on the daunting cast of 
Shakespeare brilliantly, and the play really showcased their talents, taking the 
audience through the life and betrayal of Julius Caesar by one of his closest 
confidantes, Brutus. Actors did a truly amazing job and impressed the crowd 
with their abilities. From the set, to the actors, to the crew and directing, the 
fall production ended up being a huge success and great show.

The Wilmington high school football team began its journey 
for the fall 2012 season in late August under the hot summer 
sun. With ten plus returning seniors, the squad was anxious 
to make a statement in the Middlesex league. The first game 
under the lights proved to be a battle for the wildcats and ended 
in a loss. The next week the team bounced back for a win against 
D1 powerhouse Waltham, with a stunning effort by Justin MacKinnon. 
The wildcats would then fall to their opponents for 6 more games, until a 
Friday night in Woburn turned the tide for Wilmington. The rest of the season 
was full of tight games and hard fought battles, but in the end the wildcats ended 
the season with a 2-9 record. 

While the season may not have been one for the record books, the season was 
a success. The seniors of the team that had been playing with their teammates 
since pop Warner were able to end their football careers by playing with the kids 
they had grown up with. The juniors and sophomores learned valuable lessons 
that will contribute to their success in the future. While on paper the success of 
the season may not be strong, it was in the will and the spirit of the team that 
made the season worthwhile.

The varsity cheerleaders showed their support through both the fall and win- 
ter seasons cheering for the football and basketball teams. Aside from attend- 
ing all games, pep rallies, and entertaining the crowd, the cheerleading team 
under the leadership of Coach Nicole Mingheila French came in first place at 
their league competition and proceeded to regionals. 

Led by captain Brittany Zaccagnini along with seniors Taylor Howlett, Shan- 
non McHugh, Allie Silva, and Kiley Burke the team continued to demonstrate 
an outstanding amount of skill and qualified with a high score in the division 
two league and went on to states. Following in the tradition of former Wilm- 
ington cheerleaders, they were recognized as on of the strongest teams in 
Massachusetts.

The Boys Varsity Soccer team once again exceeded expectations 
this year despite losing many valuable starters and having 
only five seniors in the line-up for the fall 2012 season. These 
seniors include: Chris Palmerino, Peter Warren, and Captains 
Colin Doherty, Eric Jaeschke, and Mitchell DeAmbrose. Low 
expectations, however, were unable to stop this team from mak- 
ing a good run in the state tournament and advancing as far as 
the semi-finals. With the experience of head coach Steve Scanlon 
and 17 returning juniors, the Wildcats are not done yet. Congratulation; 
on a great season, and good luck for the seasons to come.

After an unfortunate loss in pks in the first round of the playoffs last year, the 
lady cats had a lot to prove coming into this season. Led by senior captains 
Jackie Kennedy, Lauren McKenna, and Holly Niemiec, they cinched the Middle- 
sex Freedom League title after finishing the regular season with a record of 
12-3-3. In the first round of the playoffs, they edged out Marblehead with a 1-0 
victory. In their quarter final game against Wayland they won in penalty kicks 
after senior goalie Kim Woods made three key saves. After beating Hamilton- 
Wenham 2-0 in the Division II North semi-final, they became the first team in the 
program's history to play in the Division II North Final. Unfortunately their post 
season run came to an end in a hard fought battle to Belmont with a 1-0 loss. 
Many players were recognized for their efforts, as Holly Niemiec, Kait Curley, 
Alex Biscoff, and Lauren McKenna were all named league allstars, and Kelly 
Hartsough and Christina Spinos were named as honorable mentions. Holly 
Niemiec was also named as league MVP, Eastern Massachusetts allstar, and 
named to the Massachusetts Allstate team for Division II. The wildcats hope to 
continue their success next year.

The varsity field hockey team had a successful season on and 
off the field. The program lead by new coach Leanne Ebert 
as well as returning JV coach Diane DeMaggio and return- 
ing freshmen coach Maureen O'Mara opened the eyes of the 
young team and showed the players what it was really like 
to work together and understand the team's strengths and 
weaknesses as a whole. Captains Emily Colosimo and Megan 
Howland also played a big part in leading the team to many 
victories. 

The field hockey team accomplished many things throughout 
the season including coming together off the field by partici- 
pating in the Kelli Murray annual road race. As a team they 
helped raise money for the Kelli Murray Memorial Scholarship 
Fund and cheered each other on. The team also came to- 
gether when raising money through the local 99 restaurant. By 
doing this, some proceeds went back to the Friends of Field 
Hockey Organization. 

The girls had a successful season ending with a great record. 
After qualifying for the state tournament, the team was able to 
make it to the second round. Overall the Wildcats had a suc- 
cessful season. Next year the team will be led by some great 
seniors who will lead the team through another triumphant 
season!

The Varsity golf squad completed another season full of action, adventure, 
and great golf play this fall. The Wildcats were led by strong leadership 
under coach Stephen Lynch and senior captains Jeff Favuzza and Matthew 
Chiricosta. Other starters were seniors Andrew Morris, Jack Campbell, and 
Matt Boutoures; junior Ryan "Larry" McEvoy; and sophomores Joey Marino, 
Glen Sullivan, and Johnny Galasso. 

The Wildcats had a tough year on the links this year, posting a 3-13 re- 
cord and failing to make the playoffs; however, there were numerous 
victories among the team. Wilmington showed up to play in every match 
and improved throughout the season. Despite the high number of graduat- 
ing seniors on the team, next year still looks promising for there was vast 
improvement among the underclassmen led by next year's captain Larry 
McEvoy. Wilmington's sub-par record did not show the pride, passion, and 
heart the Wildcat golf squadron played with this season as they bonded 
together as brethren to battle in every match.

The Boys Cross Country team put together a successful sea- 
son, marked by strong performances from the senior class. 
The boys finished 2-3 (?) in the Middlesex League Small 
School Division, with the guidance of new coach Brian 
Schell. The team was led by seniors Erik Alatalo, Steve 
Halas, and Andrew Sears, who led by example as the top 
3 runners of the team and League All-Stars. Halas was also 
named team MVP, setting a new course record. Both Halas and 
Alatalo qualified for the All-State Meet - the first boys to do so in 
several years. Seniors Adam Maienza and Dan Fothergill also gave 
strong performances, adding depth to the talented squad. Junior Sam 
Alatalo and sophomore Chirs Maienza led the way for the underclassmen. 
Next year looks to be exciting as the Wildcats rebuild from the loss of their 
seniors and face a new home course.

The Girls Cross Country team had a wonderful season this year. They 
came in for a close second place in the small league division. Freshman 
Callie O'Connell went undefeated in divisional meets, tied the high school 
course record, earned a medal in States, and went on to represent the team 
in All-States. The most memorable meet was the last home meet of the 
season where almost everyone made a personal record. A highlight of the 
season was at the MSTCA Division 2 Coaches Invitational, the proud team 
had many athletes earn medals including: Callie O'Connell, Kateiyn Richard- 
son, Jackie Ryan, and Maeve Sullivan. Everyone performed well and it was a 
season to be proud of. The team was led by co-captains Savannah Hubbard 
and Kateiyn Richardson, as well as seniors Rachel Donahue, 
Scarlett Salerno, and Michelle Barnes. 






After losing six seniors in the previous year, the Wilmington Var- 
sity Volleyball team knew they were in for a tough season. The 
girls finished with a 7-13 overall record in Middlesex Small 
League, under head coach Megan Sheehy. The young team 
fought hard in many games taking them into five matches. 
Despite the unrevealing record, the team showed great effort 
and worked hard each day in practice. The girls proved to be 
productive and their hard work paid off with some wins. One of the 
most memorable games could have been caught on Dig Pink day 
where they faced off against competitive Tewksbury while raising money 
for breast cancer. 

This year's team was led by senior captains Michelle Woods and Lauren Ben^ 
nett, who both brought immense talent to the team. Michelle Woods played 
outside mainly but also played all around the court. She brought the team 
an unstoppable hit, and an overall reliable player, especially in the back row. 
Lauren Bennett was a strong middle hitter who had huge blocks for the team 
and had a consistent serve in time of need. 

As the team grows older you can expect their record and talent to only im- 
prove. Next year the team aims to make the playoffs under leadership from 
captains Kim Donoghue and Chloe Castellano.

his year with a record of 11-13. The Wildcats faced a tough start to the 
season, but it did not take long to get wins. Lead by captains Cody Hal- 
iday and Nick Troy, the team had depth throughout the lineup. The team 
;onsisted not only of a strong junior and senior class, but also hardwork- 
ng sophmore and freshman wrestlers. Facing more away matches this 
/ear, the team found ways to win matches on the road, epesically the

Eight of the fourteen wrestlers qualified for the Division Three State Tour- 
lament. Seniors Cody Halliday and Gaven Carta placed in the top 5 of the 
state tournament and wrestled well in the All-State tournament. 





The boys varsity basketball team did a good job keeping their 
head up after a tough season against many competitive teams. 
Seniors James Wilkinson, Colin Doherty and Steve Colangelo lead the'

The varsity basketball team was lead by tri-captain seniors, Alexandra Derian, 
Callin O'Flaherty, and Michelle Woods. The team had a very successful sea- 
son this year. They finished with a record of 12-8 which earned them second 
place in the Middlesex Freedom League. Their game against Melrose, which 
earned them their tenth win and a playoff berth, was also the last game ever 
played in the Lawrence Gushing Memorial Gymnasium. After gathering their 
twelve wins, the lady cats went on to make it to the semifinals of the state 
tournament, defeating Ghelsea and Danvers along the way. Although they fell 
short of making it to the Tsongas Arena, it was a well fought battle. At the end 
of the season, senior Michelle Woods, and junior Ghrista Brent, were named 
Middlesex League All-stars. The team looks forward to carrying out their win- 
ning tradition next year.

many standout players returning, it was expected the 
WHS boys hockey team would have another stellar sea- 
son. Although this put a great deal of pressure on them, 
this year's team did not disappoint us. Most of the regular 
season contests were both challenging and rewarding as the 
Wildcats faced many worthy opponents who brought their "A" 
game trying to beat the defending State Champions. One of the 
highlights was an exciting matchup against non-league powerhouse 
Maiden Catholic. In perhaps their strongest performance of the season, the 
Wildcats battled from beginning to end holding a lead at different times through- 
out the game. Despite an outstanding offensive effort by senior Dylan DiNatale 
with his "hatty," the Wildcats fell short losing 4-3. However, they definitely turned 
a few heads with that game and those dreams about playing in the Super 8 
seemed like they could come true.

Donough, C. McGowan, A. O'Neal, C. Owens, B. Pickett, J. Rogers, RJ Townsend 

As they continued to showcase their skills and tenacity while racking up wins 
against Division One foes Arlington, Winchester and Burlington, the Wildcats 
popped in and out of ESPN Boston's top ten and were included on the Super 
8 Watch List. Adding more sparkle to the season were history changing perfor- 
mances by senior Captain Cam Owens and goalie Drew Foley, in mid-February, 
Owens attained his 136th career point to break the WHS all-time scoring record 
previously held by his brother, Justin. With solid defense led by senior Assistant 
Captain Brian Pickett and seniors Cam Collins and Anthony Castellano, Drew 
Foley was posed for another standout year. With his wins and stats, Foley be- 
came the number 1 WHS goalie of all time, and he is only a junior. JP^^j^TJJj

ing skills tremendously. She kept the 
team in many games, saving almost 
400 shots this season.

The Wildcat's season peaked with a much anticipated 
match up against the Division I Reading Rockets. Since this 
game could decide who would be included in the Elite touma- 
ment, both teams had a lot on the line. After a very tight physical 
contest against our neighbors at a packed Ristuccia Arena, Reading 
came away with a 3-1 victory. The Wildcats ended the season on a posi- 
tive note beating Tewksbury on Senior Night. The 2012-2013 team finished 
the regular season 16-3-2 and captured the Middlesex League Freedom Divi- 
sion Championship title. Owens was named the Middlesex League MVP while 




Pickett, Drew Foley and Brendan McDonough were also named all-conference 
players. Along with captains Owens and Pickett, seniors Jake Rogers, Cam 
Collins, Anthony Castellano, Brooks Carter, Joe Giroux. Nick DIRienzo, and 
Andrew McDonagh contributed to the team's success. 

Although the Wildcats entered the post season as the number 3 seed in the 
North, they had the talent and experience to win it all. According to the Boston 
Globe, "it was their tournament to lose." Their first game against Stoneham was

closer than it should have been as Wilmington almost 
blew a 3-0 lead in the first period and were criticized 
by many for playing as individuals and not as a 
team. In the second contest against Boston Latin, 
it was clear the boys had refocused their energies. 
Fired up by a rowdy and colorful fan section, they 
powered their way to a 4-1 victory after a close first 
period. Surprisingly the Lincoln-Sudbury team was 
not much competition for the Wildcats as they handily 
defeated them 6-0. Dressed in formal attire and on 
their best behavior, this time WHS fans provided a 
more respectable show of support. Wilmington faced 
Danvers at the Tsongas arena for the Division II 

North Sectional. Led by junior Bren- 
dan McDonough and his hat trick, the 
Wildcats trounced the Falcons 7-2 
and once again were named Division 
II North Champions. 




With high hopes of repeating last 
year's performance, the Wildcats 
headed to the Boston Garden on St. 
Patrick's Day for the Division II final. 
The Wilmington community showed 
up in full force to support the team adorned in the school's colors of blue 
and white and also a large amount of green. Wilmington alumnus Lauren 
Azevedo got things started with a beautiful rendition of the Star Spangled 
Banner and then it was time for hockey. Cody McGowan scored the first 
goal on a feed from DiNatale near the end of the first period. After a score- 
less second period, the Wildcats demonstrated their unquestionable domi- 
nance in the third with three more goals by McDonough, Jake Rogers and 
Luke Foley to blank Franklin 4-0. As the final seconds of the game ticked 
away on the jumbotron and music from U2 filled the garden, it truly was 
a "Beautiful Day" for the Wildcat hockey team and all their devoted fans. 
Once again the team had a police escort home and then headed to an 
after party where they celebrated and marveled at their amazing twice-in-a 
-lifetime accomplishment of being crowned State Champions.

This year's National Honor Society was dedicateo^p^iving back 
to the community and living up to the National Honor Society's 
standard of scholarship, leadership, merit, and service. Our group 
this year was led by Kaitlin Kinsella, Erik Alatalo, Ling Zhong, 
Meaghan Bransfield, and Katelyn Richardson. One of the most 
important components of WHS NHS is service; this year we have 
done a wide range of community service projects to give back 
to our community. One of the major projects every year for the 
Wilmington NHS chapter is tutoring. Every week students from our 
group go out in the community and tutor Wilmington students in all 
grades. We also had a food drive to collect food for Wilmington's 
Food Pantry. This year we also had a group of children who went 
to Knowledge Beginnings, a child daycare, and read Dr. Seuss 
books on Dr. Seuss day. Our newest ongoing project has been 
volunteering at Wilmington's Health Care Center to help make 
shadow boxes for senior citizens. We will continue to do different 
projects throughout the community to fulfill our part jn_2iying back 
to Wilmington.

This year the Science Club participated in the Club Fair. During 
our meetings we work on projects and activities including rock- 
ets, blood typing, chromatography, elephant toothpaste, and 
crime scene science. We visited the pathology department at 
Lahey Clinic where we toured the lab and tried out some of the 
lab equipment. Then we spent time with Dr. Pryzjemski in clini- 
cal pathology where he showed us surgical removals. We were 
able to see and touch actual body organs and see the differ- 
ence between a normal one and a diseased one. The Science 
Club also co-hosted the 2013 Talent Show.

Over the past I If y school year, the Sophomore 
Class Officers continued the hard work they had 

started as Freshmen to build funds for the Class of 2015. Dur- 
ing the winter, the class hosted a hair dye fundraiser in which 
students and faculty donated money to six different dye colors; 
the winning color was seen on the heads of Ms. Bellavia and 
Ms. Fidler for most of Quarter 3! Along with the hair dye fund- 
raiser, the officers planned several other events to raise money, 
looking for alternatives to the Spring Fling after the gym was 
demolished in February. 

In addition to fundraising, the officers began researching po- 
tential venues for next year's Junior Prom by forming a prom 
committee. By planning ahead, next year's prom is certain to be 
a huge success!

The officers have worked hard this year to organize their Senior 
'Prom as well as many fundraising events. They continued tradi- 
iitions such as coordinating Spirit Week, and introduced a new 
laspect of having students bring in donations to support Local 
IHeroes. Events and other fundraisers sponsored by the class 
ihave included the Student vs. Faculty Dodge ball tournament, 
'Prom Expo & Fashion Show with the Class of 2014, and the 
iSenior vs. Faculty Basketball game. The officers would also like 
:to thank the efforts of the volunteers of the Senior Class Com- 
rmittee as their dedication to supporting their class has made 
la great impact! The Class of 2013 Officers have put countless 
ihours, serving in a leadership role for the past four years, in 
ihopes that everyone will enjoy their senior prom and final mo- 
[ments at WHS. Hopefully all their hard work pays off!

I hope you choose the one that means the most to you. 
And If one door opens to another door closed, 
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window, 
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile, 

But more than anything, more than anything, 
luly wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, 
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small. 
You never need to carry more than you can hold. 
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to, 
I hope you know somebody loves you. and wants the same things too, 
Yeah, this, is my wish 

I hope you never look back, but ya never forget, 
All the ones who love you, in the place you left, 
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret. 
And you help somebody every chance you get, 
Oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake, 
And you always give more than you take. 

But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,

As you graduate and get ready to start school in the fall, it 
leaves us with mixed emotions. Just as you are happy that high 
school is ending, we find ourselves feeling both happy and sad 
that our little girl is growing up. It doesn't seem all that long 
ago that we were following the big yellow school bus taking 
you to your first day of kindergarten. Yes, we were slightly over 
protective but you know how your father is. There will be some 
challenges as you begin creating a life of your own, but if you 
approach those challenges with the same enthusiasm and 
courage that you have up until now, you will find your way in 
life and you will be happy. 

We are so proud of all that you have accomplished and we 
know you will succeed in whatever you do. We can't wait to 
see what the future holds for you! 



Love always and forever, 
Mom, Dad & Aaron 



P.S. We were going to get you 
a llama for graduation, but 
we got you a nice picture 
of one instead.
